Organisers of the London Vet Show are celebrating attracting a record number of delegates to the event.

A total of 4,699 veterinary professionals, not including exhibitors, attended the show at Olympia in London on Thursday and Friday last week (November 20 and 21) cementing its position as the UK’s largest event over two days for the profession.

Over the two days, delegates filled the exhibition hall and CPD-accredited lectures.

The Royal Veterinary College programmed the three main clinical theatres, the British Veterinary Nursing Association organised a lecture stream for vet nurses and the British Veterinary Association held a large animal clinical theatre as well as its congress and careers fair.

Just under 400 suppliers and service providers to the veterinary sector reported brisk business and three-quarters of them have already booked for the 2015 event.

James Weston, from MRI Northwest, partnered with PLH Medical, was also delighted with the results.

Speaking on the first day he said: “We have already received great interest from many clinical directors and senior decision makers and it is not even 10.30am.”

Event director Rob Chapman, of CloserStill Media, which organised the show, said the number of delegates was 15% higher than last year.

“The range of content was better than ever before and in 2015 we will be looking to continue many of these relationships,” he said.

“The 2015 programme will be confirmed at the start of next year when we have had a chance to collate and review all of the feedback from our delegates, exhibitors and partners. The feedback we have received from both exhibitors and delegates has been outstanding.”
